Why Would you Want wolfSSL’s FIPS 140-3 Certificate

Hi! As our readers know, wolfSSL produces the first embedded TLS library that has begun testing for the new FIPS 140-3 standard, as listed here: https://csrc.nist.gov/projects/cryptographic-module-validation-program/modules-in-process/iut-list

There are a few significant changes coming with FIPS 140-3. Over the years with many specification updates, a few things got a little inconsistent, so these inconsistencies have been brought back in line. wolfSSL is prepared to deliver the first and best implementation of FIPS 140-3, so get ready.

As FIPS 140-3 is the replacement for FIPS 140-2 it is always a good idea to switch over to it as soon as possible. You will also want wolfSSL’s FIPS 140-3 Certificate for many additional reasons that include:
– Merging the FIPS + ISO Standard (see this https://www.corsec.com/fips-140-3/)
– CAST Testing Streamlined – just testing the algos they are actually using.
– Addition of TLS KDF in FIPS Boundary
– Addition of SSH KDF in FIPS Boundary
– Addition of RSA 4096
– Addition of ECDSA + SHA-3
– Removal of insecure algorithms: example Triple DES
